How easy to crack a 4 digit password? Very easy. Really - very very easy. A short bit of VBA code will find a short password in a few seconds (literally).

Go for non dictionary passwords, at least 9 characters, using a mix of numbers, upper and lower case letters and the a symbol or two if you want.

There are still attacks that will remove the password with relative ease, but they are not as common.
